Subject: I watched this live
This is a sanitized compilation, no where near as gruesome as what I watched live that morning on 9/11/01.

Every year around this time, I use this video in my classroom to re-enforce the magnitude of 9/11 and the impact it has on our society today. It's really a shame that most of my middle school students have little to no knowledge of what went on that Tuesday morning. Never forget, and please continue to educate so that this history will never be repeated.

Thank you for the clips from the news.
Lest we forget.
Never forget the evil around us. emerging under the banner of Religion.
And all of the people that live under that banner, that have to suffer because of the people that fight under the banner have thrown mistrust amongst there own people. A very moving news journey into sept 11th

Subject: Wide sample of coverage that day
nice compilation. Probably the best way to get a sense of the horror of that day. Seems that there should be a dedicated 9/11/01 original footage and news coverage section here on (not the conspiracy stuff)
